This year, instead of writing a newsletter "column" each month, Rev. Peter is offering up an original poem that is linked to our monthly spiritual theme. The spiritual theme for May is "Blessing".
“Sense of Blessing”
I know what a blessing looks like,
and I’m not talking about a picture of
the Pope placing his cupped hands
on a child’s head.
It looks like the midnight delivery
of a stunned and wide-eyed Indian orphan
to her adoptive parents at the baggage claim
carousel in Terminal E of Logan Airport;
and a full moon rising over Mt. Katahdin
on an autumn night so clear and cold
it makes your teeth ache.
